New Orleans

Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site and Frenchmen Street are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Global Wildlife Center. Venture out of the city with trips to Whitney Plantation (in Edgard), Vacherie (St. Joseph Plantation & Oak Alley Plantation) and Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow). Spend the 14th (Tue) exploring nature at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at The National WWII Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Louis Cathedral, take a stroll through Magazine Street, and hunt for treasures at French Market.
